1736 February 8 (Sunday). I had no body to preach for me. I prepar’d what I could in the middst of the broken, heavy Thoughts of the Week — and I preached on Ezek. 24.16. My Daughter Molly had been much troubled with an Ague in her Face, her Teeth and Ear; but is better.
Ezek. 24.16, “Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down.”
Mary, or Molly, Parkman, eldest daughter of Ebenezer and Mary (Molly) Parkman, b. Sept. 14, 1725 (WVR, 82).
